Last week, City lost 10-0 in the first leg and realistically have no chance of qualifying for the Last 8 of the competition, against a side that has won the Women’s Champions League twice and reached the final last season ultimately losing to Lyon.

Tomorrow night’s game is now all about City restoring some pride and to end their European adventure on a high. City head coach Eddie Wolecki Black said: “The game is dead and buried. It was just pointed out to me the other night there, that the last time we lost by more than one goal in a game was against Duisburg in the Champions League, so that just shows that the gap between domestic football and when you play Champions League football its huge when you play the top clubs.

“The girls will obviously be out to restore it tomorrow and I think that it wasn’t a fair reflection on the performance of us as a team all season in one game. It is hard to judge us on one match where everything that did go into the back of the net did.”

City have a number of injury worries ahead of the game tomorrow night, with 19-year-old keeper Lee Alexander carrying a knock, but Black is hopeful that she can recover in time to play her last game as she is cup-tied for the Cup Final on Sunday.

Skipper Rachel Corsie has been having scans and the 21-year-old defender will require surgery after the end of the season. One major boost for City is the return of striker Christie Murray from injury. Black said on the return of Murray: “Christie has been released by the medical staff and she will join us tomorrow night. It is a great boost because she’s been a miss, we have certainly missed her without a shadow of a doubt.”

Follow all the action LIVE on BBC ALBA on Sky Channel 168, on Freesat channel 110 and Freeview channel 8. Scotzine will have audio commentary of the game and post match interviews later that night, due to exclusive rights issue.
